Where can a dentist find accurate medical information quickly? Practising dentists need to be aware of much more than their patients' dental needs. Without warning, they can be confronted with a patient at risk because of some medical condition or a possible drug sensitivity or interaction - and there is paucity of concise guides to the medical conditions likely to be important to dentists. Medicine for dentists: a problem-based approach answers this need. Written in a concise and user-friendly style, it is clinically oriented and succinct. It includes: a comprehensive patient questionnaire dentists can use in their own practice; a problem-based account of the essentials of pathophysiology: what to look for, possible issues of concern and what to do in initial management; suggested strategies for cooperation with medical colleagues; a glossary of more than 500 commonly used medical terms; Fully revised, this new edition also includes details of useful websites for further reading and research.
